FIREBASE




FIREBASE

Oats Studios - Volume 1 - Firebase - Firebase, the second film from Neill Blomkamp’s Oats Studios has been released online and dabbles in a few genres of science-fiction. It feels like a blend of Predator and The X-Files meets Full Metal Jacket. The first short film, Rakka, was a post-apocalyptic take on an alien invasion.

Firebase focuses on an American soldier pitted against mysterious forces in the Vietnamese jungle, some of which appear to be fellow soldiers but with a gruesome secret hiding beneath their skin. Once they shed their human layers, they look like a cross between the aliens from Rakka and the Prawns in District 9. Added to the found footage style of medical autopsies — Blomkamp really coats this film in gore. And the mystery only deepens when the short introduces a hideously burnt man who claims to have witnessed a Russian invasion of American soil with futuristic weapons and vehicles. And still, it gets a little more bizarre.
